# Does anybody know how to get Geogebra to solve this differential equation?

Malcolm Clarke shared this question 2 years ago

I have a differential equation in the form y'' + B/y^2 = C / (D - Ex), where B, C, D and E are all parameters. As far as I can tell, SolveODE only allows equations in the form y'' + a(x)y' + b(x)y = f(x). Is there any way to solve this equation using GeoGebra?

you can try Nsolveode()

see the help

try wolfram alpha also but I think without solution

I don't quite understand how NSolveODE is going to help - its for a system of differential equations, but I only have 1. W|A doesn't return a solution - I don't believe its analytically solvable.

a second order equation y''=............ is like system y'=w ; w`=...............

I don't really agree with that statement, but if you could show how you might use NSolveODE to solve the equation, that would be greatly appreciated.

Es cuanto menos curioso que se dude de la solución planteada por un matemático y a continuación se le pida dicha solución, pero como somos así ahí va la respuesta
